not in the long run, you know, how to build something the way steve jobs built apple and how it can be part of a community and go on and on and create jobs and survive and thrive. they look at companies as sort of profit opportunities. we look for companies with hidden or potential value. we go in there, take a stake, try to manage them, and then harvest them for significant profits. now, as president obama has said, in some ways there's nothing wrong with that. newt gingrich called it vulture capital lic capitalism. it's looking at a way of creating jobs, being a stake holder in the community and thinking about the long run. that's not what you're look at. mitt romney was just talking the jargon of someone who does private equity and it's just not -- at the same time, though, in the last year he's told us that he can create jobs and knows the economy better because of his bain cap pal experience. >> but michelle, let me ask you, harvest companies -- buy companies and harvest them, where can you even find the most generous stretch you can, find job creation? >> it is unfortunate imagery and
. not if these are the policies they're running on. joining me is steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle" here on cnbc, and democratic strategist, advising wayne powell, the democrat trying to unseat house leader eric cantor. thank you for coming on the show tonight. >> sure. >> great being here. >> good to see you, mud cat. steve, let me start with you. romney's clearly not the best candidate, but aren't his policies, or lack of policies, isn't that what really is dragging him down? >> yeah. i mean, i think he's constrained by two forces here. when you look at the question of policy specificity. the first is sort of where his party is on an array of issues. the republican party sort of, the base of the republican party, and when you look at demands of its candidates is particularly far to the right. the gap between where the republican party is and where the average general election swing voter is, i think is wider than usual this year. so, on any given issue, if romney really expresses the base's message there's going to be a bigger gap than usual between where he is and where the rest of the public
